"It takes a worried man---'

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I'm worried now but I won't be worried long
(Only until January 23)
Lyrics by Van Morrison, sung by the Kingston trio.
Which one of these two looks worried?

Dont' start the song and dance yet. We are not a two party state but a three party state. That makes all the difference. It means that it's harder for the CPC to win.

The addition of a third party upsets a clear choice - especially since one of the parties is close, awfully close in ideology to the other.

So, you could be in favour of the NDP and vote Liberal, to prevent the CPC from coming to power. This was the Liberal strategy in 2004 and we all know that they will use it this time as well.
Layton is trying to prevent this -

It has already begun. A new opinion survey suggests that although voters like the NDP, they would vote Liberal if there was a Conservative surge. See online Toronto star article.

I just love the commercial that goes... "hands in your pockets" The consevatives should try to get permission to use it, then get a Martin/Goodall look alike as the guy with the Hand in your pocket...... The truth will set you free but first, will cause you great pain.
